Closed petition Abolish VAT for the fitness industry

The Government should abolish VAT on all fitness services, & gym fees that are intended to improve, protect, maintain and restore physical, mental and emotional health. This should enable the fitness industry to lower prices to encourage people to exercise, and could thereby reduce NHS costs.

More details

People with diabetes or who are obese – or have conditions that can be exacerbated by obesity, such as cancer, heart disease – are clinically vulnerable to Covid-19. New safety requirements could also create financial difficulties for the fitness industry, so the Government should abolish VAT for this industry, to sustain the sector and with a view to reducing costs for the NHS, by making it cheaper for people to access services that help them maintain their health.
